While it has been reported to be otherwise in another post, you CAN (as of 6.0.3) buy this after creating a Worgen DK and playing through the DK area.  Took me just under 2 hours.

I think this one is really overrated. I'd pick a moth over the raven any day.

I started a Worgen just for this Raven and got bored after level 7 since there was nothing to do except that boring storyline, deleted and will try the DK route instead.  I'm a total Horde character and have have no desire to build Alliance other than this highly rated raven.  But lately I've been finding that my Frostfur Rat has been a wonderful subsitute for high-end battles where people have recommended using the Gilnean Raven.

I know the glitch trick to get out of the Worgen starting..from start to walking into SW its about 15 min tops.  I only just learned of this pet today & have not tryed this w/ my lvl 1 Worgen bank alt but if i can buy the pet, then the farm of it would be about 20 min.  You can find several vids on Youtube of how to leave the Worgen starting area.

As a horde, you have to start a level one Worgen, level it up to 12, when you can leave their starting area, and then travel to Stormwind, and puchase one.  You are only allowed the one from what I can tell.  If that is wrong and there is a way to get more or sell them so people dont have to go through this let me know.

I am so disappointed in myself. I forgot to check stats before posting one of my ravens on the auction house. Someone got a sweet a deal on a S/S raven.


So. Very. Sad.

Just tried the trick recommended in Wowhead forums of shortcutting the long, long Worgen startup quest chain.  Worgen DK can finish the DK startups much more quickly. 


Blizz seems to have caught onto this though, trainer Audrey in SW wouldn't offer the Raven to my DK.  Apparently you now have to have gone through and completed Worgen startup zone.


And yes, as other posters have pointed out, the Raven always comes uncommon and, since patch 5.2, only B/B.  Ravens acquired before the patch retain their original qualities.  Can occasionally find some of the more desireable S/S and P/S in AH, but be prepared to pay dearly.

I combine the Gilnean Raven with a Crow to power level new pets in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows. Most of the wild pets you battle in that zone are level 24-25 aquatics, and these two absolutely tear through them. I typically finish battles in less than 2 minutes.

I make this and the crow rares for battles against aquatic.  I love these two together when leveling other pets.  They are beast against the striders in the Vale.

When I read about the pet and how you needed to be a worgen to get it... killed me. I usually roll humans or Orcs depending lol... and to get this pet was a journey...leveling from 1-15ish then somehow making a huge journey because zygor lead me the wrong way I assume... walked from 1 end to another end of one continent to do the same on another and dying repeatedly lol... next time I will hire a taxi with a 2 seater... but finally got him today :)

In reply to a previous comment. My Raven's only miss against Elementals because they ignore all weather effects, maybe your opponent swapped in an elemental? I know I like to do that when I see one :) Still 50/50 but it's still funny and possibly game changing when it misses.

Over the last few weeks I have used this pet a lot and have noticed that Nocturnal strike will still miss from time to time during darkness. I have always looked for any mitigating factors on the opponents side that might be the cause and there aren't any during these misses.


Has anyone else notied this problem as well? Because this is a huge part of this pets mechanic, and can kill a game almost completely when it happens.

This has been one of those pets I have tried to NOT want due to the need of rolling a worgen - 


Alas, I broke down, but not only did I make a worgen and get this lil guy, but 2 of my guildmates took the afternoon to make one and both sent me a Gilnean Raven so I could have a full team. (most likely to not hear me whine on vent!!)


These lil guys are mega useful, and strong!

Not bad luck, it is preset now to be purchased one time on each toon (worgen toon that is) from either NPC with the stat build of B/B. The other builds are no longer obtainable, only adding to there rarity. IF you see a S/S on auction or being traded out in chat, hop on it :)

Within 5 battles I get why this pet is so highly rated. He held his own several rounds against pets literally 10 levels higher than him. I did eventually have to bring in another pet obviously but that's still impressive.

Not sure what happened to your pet. My Gilnean Raven was purchased, leveled to 25 and stoned to blue quality somewhere in 2012. I checked it today and it has P/S breed, so it doesn't seem that all pre-patch purchased Ravens were unified.
